! but one thing for sure on that stage last night we only saw one commander in chief. yes, obama wins round three of the presidential debate hands down. we'll get into it every which way here for the next three hours but first today's latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. if you are asking yourself who won last night's presidential debate you probably weren't watching. president obama came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obam
tomorrow night! >> cenk: all right. on "the young turks," we're going to show you how president obama smashed mitt romney last night. >> obama: in the 1980s or now calling and ask for their foreign policy back. we visited their web site quite a bit and it still doesn't work. governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military has changed. >> cenk: a lot more of that. that's going to be fun! we've got match-ups. then we've got mitt romney sweating up a storm. what was he so nervous about? mark hamill is back in the studio to break that part of the debate down. >> there's like scripted drama where you couldn't believe the stunned look on his face. >> cenk: and then reverend jesse jackson joins us to break down the sensata controversy. >> make no mistake about it, sensata, freeport, illinois, is ground zero on the american fight to keep jobs here in the united states. [ applause ] >> cenk: and more elbows than you can shake your first at. go time! >> obama: i said if i got bin laden in s
different reason for preferring president obama. >> cenk: what reason would that be? >> yeah, i got a pretty good idea. we'll show the wholly in a little bit. then the republicans are terribly offended by this ad. >> my first time voting was amazing. before i was a girl, now i am a woman. i pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right, let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%. i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morning as i looked a the those numbers. that's not one poll. that's a combination of polls. there is some chance now that president obama loses the popular vote, which is amazing. why is that the case? president obama
give $5 million to any charity if president obama would just release his passport records and his college transcripts. guess what! i will give $10 million to any charity if donald trump will just shut up and go away! of course, i won't lose $10 million because he'll never shut up. we'll get into that and a whole lot more. first we start with getting the current update. the latest current news roundup from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. john mccain is unendorsing richard mourdock. the indiana senate candidate is underfire this week for calling rape pregnancies an intentional gift from god. coincidentally, mourdock is the only senate candidate mitt romney has endorse and cut an ad for this season. he just released the ad in support of mourdock monday and the rape comments came tuesday night. mccain said he will no longer support mourdock unless he apologizes for those remarks but most republicans are staying in mourdock's corner. santorum is saying i
seem kind of hard-pressed to come up with any real criticism of the obama administration's foreign policy positions. as our own john fuglesang here at current tv, he put it so wonderfully, it was as if romney were introducing the me, too doctrine. so how much does mitt romney support the president's foreign policy? well, let me count the ways. he agrees with the president's proposed 2014 withdrawal from afghanistan. he agrees with putting sanctions on iran. and he agrees with the president's handling of the iraq war. and the drone strikes and targeted killings in pakistan. but one place the candidates do diverge is on spending. here's what that looks like when you put the two plans side by side. president obama would honor the department of defense's request that defense spending be 3.3% of gross domestic product and keep the funding stable over the next decade. mitt romney on the other hand, he would bump that up to 4%. so that's where you get that huge $2 trillion increase over ten years which by the way
offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in the first place. president obama made a similar observation a little more colorfully when he said, kids have have good instincts. they look at the other guy and say well there is a bser, i can tell. president obama is rattled on the defensive. he's running on empty and has nothing left but attacks and insults. wit
of virginia, florida and nevada where new polls show president obama needs to continue to step up his game if he's going to win a second term. in virginia, the republican leaning poll from rasmussen has romney leading the president 50 to 48. before the final presidential debate, the same poll had romney at 50 and president obama at 47. so still close. in florida, a poll from gravis marketing puts romney at 50%. president obama at 49%. same poll taken earlier this month was romney 49 and the president 48. again very little movement. the news is better in nevada where ppp has president leading mitt romney by 4 points, 51% to 47%. results are unchanged frankly from their poll released on october 10th in nevada. it is better. still not good enough. before you start pulling your hair out you political junkies and progressives, there are a few thinks you need to consider. all of these poll numbers are within the margin of error. and more importantly, "new york times" 538 blogger nate silver who has an astonishingly strong trac
for senate. richard worked with governor mitch daniels with the budget. he'll be the 51st vote to stop obama healthcare. and there is so much at stake, i hope you'll join me in supporting richard mourdock for u.s. senate. >> i'm richard mourdock. i approve this message. >> cenk: shouldn't we support richard mourdock. he was in a debate last night. he said something interesting. let's see if you support this. >> i realized that god is a gift from god. even when life begins in a horrible situation of rape it is something that god intenned to happen. >> cenk: god intended to happen? wow! well, how about paul ryan, he doesn't support this radical guy, does he? you can see where this is going--of course he does. he said, quote please, pleads send us richard mourdock. we need this man in the united states senate. now, he said that in in the september 17th fundraiser, of course. also another man running for united states senate--these are not podunk guys in local communities. these are not bloggers. these are not tangential figures. todd akin is also run running for united states senate in missouri
. comas up under obama. he has come up under obama. so there's that, mitt. [ applause ] governor, the state isn't proud of you. you can't even compete in massachusetts. mittens talked about how proud he is in massachusetts. the feeling is not mutual. the president kind of having fun with the romnesia on the campaign trail. >> obama: if you talk about how much you love teaches during a debate but just a few weeks go, you said we shouldn't hire more because it wouldn't grow our economy, you might have romnesia. if you say you won't give a big tax cut to the wealthy but you're on a video promising your tax cut would include the top 1%, that sounds like a classic case of romnesia. >> stephanie: ray in texas. you're on "the stephanie miller show." hi ray. >> caller: good morning. that was fast. i'm usually on hold for an hour and 18 minutes. i wanted to make three quick little points. first about third party -- the third party debates last night and i'm actually considering giving my vote to jill stein because my
are in the homestretch of the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney met to debate foreign policy at lynn university in boca raton florida, last night and when it was all over, romney's running mate, congressman paul ryan, picked a winner close to his heart. >> i think governor romney won this debate and you know why i think he won it? because americans, for a third time now got to see a man ready to become a great president. >> eliot: the polls suggest voters saw the debate a little differently. undecided voters in a cbs news poll favored president obama's performance by 30 points over mitt romney. registered voters in a cnn poll gave the president an 8-point lead over his rival and voters in 11 swing states gave mr. obama an 11-point debate margin over romney in a public policy poll. those swing state voters also favored the president by 6 points when they were asked who they planned to support. the big sur prices last night for much of the debate, mitt romney seemed more concerned with obscuring the differences
. it will be interesting to see if either moderator or candidate brings up those loss. the obama campaign out with a new television ad juxtaposing his and mitt romney's stance on the wars in iraq and afghanistan. here is a bit of that spot linking the u.s. foreign policy with domestic progress. >> obama's brought 30,000 soldiers back from afghanistan and has a responsible plan to end the war. romney calls it bobble's biggest mistake. it is time to stop fighting over there and start rebuilding here. >> we're also bound to hear more on the attacks in libya and our consulate in benghazi and how the administration has been handling communications in the aftermath. romney also is going to bring up iran. i'm sure both will bring up iran. mitt romney refused to say whether or not he would have one on one talks with the country. he says he wants to tighten sanctions but he hasn't specified how he would do that. the reports are the sanctions already in place are working. so far iran's currency has been stifle and the value of its money
obama is following up a great debate performance with a rally in del ray, florida today. they are handing out a block called "blueprint for the future." there is a new tved a to go along with it. >> obama: we're not there yet but we have made real progress and the last thing we should do is turn back now. here is my plan for the next four years. >> the president's plan including prioritizing building up our manufacturing, asking the wealthiest to pay a little more. afghanistan is just one of the issues that came up in last night's debate where mitt romney didn't seem to disagree with the president all that much. you'll here paul ryan speak this morning and then biden about what they thought. >> what they got from mitt romney clearances a clear vision for foreign policy very clear distinctions and how we could go forward with this country. >> i didn't see anything that the governor disagreed on and he seemed to be desperately trying to demonstrate he agreed with the president's policies. >> we'll have plenty more coming back after the break. stay wi
to come out on top. here is a look. >> romney: it took the president 14 days before he called >> obama: get the transcript. >> he did in fact sir. >> obama: can you say that a little louder candy. >> the united states and iran has agreed to a one-on-one talk on nuclear weapons. but the white house so far as denied the agreement. >> governor romney what worries me is that he is not ready for national security. >> other democrats painted romney as someone who is inexperienced and could bluster his way into a war with iran. more after the break, we're live in chat at current.com/billpress. used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >> now that's politially direct. >>start the night with a special live edition of "talking liberally with stephanie miller" at 7 eastern. only on current tv. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up w
well. after last night's debate in boca raton florida. president obama stayed in the sunshine state to campaign in delray beach where he unveiled a new brochure entitled the new economic patriotism, a plan for jobs and middle class. >> obama: i've laid out a plan for jobs and middle class security. and unlike mitt romney, i'm actually proud to talk about what's in it. and by the way the math in my plan adds up. >> eliot: despite the glossy new packaging the brochure offers little in terms of new policy. a fact the campaign openly admits. >> the pamphlet reflects the ideas that the president has advanced throughout this campaign but we wanted to codify it and put it in one place so that as voters who are making their final decisions contemplate the decisions and have a chance to look at the specific ideas the president is offering. >> eliot: that didn't stop the obama campaign from touting the campaign including ohio, new hampshire, virginia and of course florida. let's bring in former florida congressman ala
as it did in 2008. he used to be the war hero when he was with bush. now he endorses obama. it is all colin powell. >> i think if he endorsed romney, that would be a big irstory -- bigger story. >> john: i think you're right. tina depue and eric boehlert, two of the smartest people i know. thank you both so much for your time tonight. a programming note, governor eliot spitzer will be back tomorrow live from l.a. where he's also appearing on real time with bill maher. catch him tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. eastern on hbo. coming up tonight the romneys found another investment that could be good for their future. voting machines. will their new model come with a four-year warranty? that's ahead. >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy. i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three wor
important swing state in this election. here is the president there yesterday. >> obama: if mitt romney had been president when the auto try was on the verge of collapse we might not have an american auto industry today. >> you can see that appealing to the worker-class voters. early voting could give president obama theed a advantage. ho stopped off to vote early yesterday. more bill press is coming up live after the break, and as always we are love in chat and would love to see you there. we can join us there at current.com/billpress. see you on the other side of the break. highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

about how the obama team views the final stretch. and i think again their internal polling and what you just said, you know the turn out, a lot of the groupings are feeling under polled, they are feeling emboldened enough to compete in all 90 battle grounds, they are feeling good enough about things in all nine of them, roo it's? >> yeah, we are feeling very good in all of the battle ground states. i think the polls will continue to fluctuate, somebody will be three or four points up and down. and we are not really focusing on that. we are focusing on actually getting folks, you know, knowing what their rights are to vote. knowing where their polling location is. frankly the get out the vote effort the number one thing that drives people to vote and changes the minds of voters is face-to-face voter contact and phone banking. it's not these ads that you see on tv. it's not the talking heads, you know, that come on cable news, it literally is community members talking to other community members and that's why
. >> if barack obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and if he gives his pass port applications and records, i will give to a charity of his choice a check, immediately, for $5 million. >> jennifer: i'm just saying. you know what really bugs me about the comments in the context of the presidential race? these guys are all tightly connected to mitt romney. john sununu is an active romney surrogate as he basically says that colin powell endorsed president obama because he is black. donald trump, you know he has been doing robo calls and endorsements for mitt romney. despite the fact that these guys are supporters and allies mitt romney has not personally refuted a single one of their offensive statements. he has actually been running from the media, hoping hoping it all dies down please go away. he could certainly learn a thing, mitt romney could, about being courageous from john mccain. remember in 2008 when john mccain stood up to the people who thought president obama administration was a muslim. >> no, man. he is not. thank you. thank you.
, every last vote. we're going into battle here people suit up and get ready to roll out. president obama is leading the charge, and he will being deployed to four states today. at 0800 he flew from washington, d.c. to davenport iowa then off to denver colorado, and from there on to los angeles to type the tonight show with jay leno. he has still got to head to nevada for another -- for another rally, and this one with a uso-like where indicate katery perry will perform. but the enemy, mitt romney is also on the march. reflies from nevada to iowa -- wait -- nevada iowa to ohio, and all of these states have early voting. look. in nevada where 11% of the population has already voted there are good signs for the democrats. 45% democrats, 35 republican. in iowa almost a quarter of the stated has already voted, 47% democrats, 31% republicans. in ohio counter insurgency effort by republicans. that state doesn't report party affiliation so we have less intel there, but we know that 8% of turned in their ballots. and the president is ahead in the polls there. now let's take
cain. it is about a 90,000 to 70,000 percent -- number about 54 to 46% obama precincts have turned out. and we're very pleased with that, so i think you can make a conclusion that the early vote is coming out for the president, and that's a trend we need to carry over the next ten days. bile kicking off about a half a dozen canvases tomorrow. we would encourage people to early vote tomorrow as you go out to buy batteries and bread tomorrow put on the list voting. vote early. go to gottavote.com to find out where you can vote early. >> jennifer: brian is the hurricane projected to have an impact in virginia? >> well, we don't know. we're watching it very closely as of now we're continuing all of our activities over the weekend -- >> jennifer: it's a little further north, i believe. what part of the state are you as chairman most concerned about? is it the d.c. suburbs or other parts of the state that might need more convincing? >> because of the substantial ground game we have we are pulling votes out of every area of virginia. in terms of the large turnout in swing coun

[ cheers and applause ] >> gentlemen your campaigns have agreed to certain rules, and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll poesz a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate as both of you know comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installs nuclear missiles in cuba. and it is a sobering reminder that ever president faces at some point an unexpected threat to our national security from abroad. so let's begin. the first segment is the challenge of a changing middle east and the new face of terrorism. i'm going to put this into two segments. the first question and it concerns libya, the controversy over what happened here continues. four americans are dead including an american ambassador. questions remain what hand what caused it? was it is a policy failure? was
would make me vote for president obama. do you think chief justice roberts or alito do they agree with the desire to overturn roe v. wade and let states enact crazy laws that it would be pushing? >> i don't know. i haven't studied what their views are but i can't imagine they wouldn't be. they weren't selected by president bush because they were pro-choice, that's for sure. >> eliot: you said not one republican woman has stood up. when you talk with them one-on-one, do they display discomfort? not to raise these hard issues and to push people, do you ever say to this, please, let's make this a bipartisan effort? let's push against this? >> they have been silent. they have not engaged in this issue at all. when you think about planned parenthood, the money we provide to planned parenthood, 97% of it goes to provide breast cancer screening. why wouldn't you want pro women or college women to access those kinds of screenings, yet they wouldn't lift a finger to protect it. >> it is an insane warped view of the world that is so troubling that i fear there politics has done to an unfort
the command center chief test, and has president obama already passed it, and hence this debate is really about whether romney can pass it or not, is it as simple as that, or is it more detailed? >> al gore: i think it is a factor, but i think it's more detailed in an era where the united states has been through two long wars. i think that governor romney, in addition to being required to pass that test, i agree with you on that, he also has some opportunities to try to take particular incidents like the bengahzi matter, and use it as a symbol to lay the basis for a broader indictment. i don't think it's justified and i don't think you'll be able to do it, but he certainly is going to try. now his lack of experience in these issues has already shown up. you know he declared that russia was our number one foreign policy opponent causing former secretary of state and chairman of the joint chief colin powell to say come on, mitt think. i thought that was very hurtful to governor romney. >> jennifer: i put bets on the table that colin powell endorses some time tonight or in the next few days.
'm in the news barrage of obama versus romney, my guests are taking on serious issues that require and deserve our full attention no matter who is in office in the next four years. tony blair is no longer on the front pages of the times or the guardian but his reprieve from politics has allowed him to deinvite most of his time to issues he cares about. supermodel petra nemcova's influence is different than blaresblairs but she's still leverages that influence. and carolyn miles works against things that only get worse child obesity. figuring out ways to figure out solutions to long-term problems, charles best, that's in the classroom. as lieutenant governor, after the elections are over, we need to refocus our attention on the kinds of long-standing issues illustrated by my guests. issues that may not make for shocking headlines but are usually much more deserving of our attention and our support. thanks for your attention tonight and anker please continue our conversation on twitter, facebook and google plus.
